Do you feel clear, calm, and happy during yoga practice, only to lose the feeling hours or even minutes after you step off your yoga mat?Wouldn’t it be fulfilling to carry that yoga high off of the mat into the other twenty-three hours of your day?
Moving through physical postures and linking them with mindful breath is the gateway into a much deeper yoga practice. This week, we are excited to offer you a relatable, practical series on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, to allow you to move to the next level and learn to live your yoga all day long.
Yoga Sutra 1.2 Citta vritti nirodhah is the pillar around which the entire text functions. This principle has been defined with various nuances, but essentially means yoga is the ability to direct the mind without distractionor interruption.
How you ask? Whether you are unfamiliar with the Sutras, have heard a few in yoga class, or you are a philosophy scholar, you’ll find something of value in this program from Bhavani Maki, the author of The Yogi’s Roadmap: The Patanjali Yoga Sutra as a Journey to Self Realization. Her focus is on learning how to apply ancient philosophy to modern life.
Learn how principles like patience, letting go, faith, courage, fear, truth, connection and more apply during asana and during your workday, in your relationships and into the world.
All of these concepts are part of the yogic wisdom imparted in the key teachings of the Yoga Sutras. It takes courage to peel off the external layers we’ve accumulated in our lives and work to uncover the beautiful light living inside of us. The Sutras are a road map to living life as the real you: perfectly imperfect.
So join us as we follow along with Bhavani Maki’s unique and contemporary insights into the Patañjali Yoga Sutras and discover your own spiritual awakening.
